apple bourbon BBQ sauce

apple bourbon BBQ sauce

A sweet, spicy and tangy apple bourbon barbecue sauce. Great alongside those smoked meats and, well, any barbecue food for that matter.

strawberry bacon jam

strawberry bacon jam

Bacon. Strawberries… in a jam? Sounds good to me! Sweet spreadable strawberry jam with crispy bacon pieces. Great for burgers, on toast and as a condiment.

refined sugar free BBQ sauce

refined sugar free BBQ sauce

Store bought sauces are typically loaded with sugar, calories, flavourings and preservatives. Besides being very unhealthy they have a tendency to overpower whatever you are serving it with. Medijool dates and maple syrup form the sweetener in this BBQ sauce.

coco mojitos

coco mojitos

Be warned. These are addictive! Marina and I first discovered coco mojitos on our honeymoon and they quickly became a favourite. Vodka, coconut rum, pineapple, lime and some other secrets make for one (or two) tasty cocktails.

cashew cheese

cashew cheese

This cashew cheese was made to stuff inside some jalapeno and paprika poppers whilst on the Whole30 program. The flavour can be enhanced by adding chives, rosemary, green peppercorns, paprika, chilli flakes, dijon mustard, seeded mustard, lime or coriander.

Heston Blumenthal inspired BBQ sauce with an espresso hit. Use this espresso BBQ sauce on your smoked meats, steaks, burgers… any type of meat really!

avocado mayonnaise

avocado mayonnaise

One of the selling points of buying a Thermomix is the ability to make delicious home made mayonnaise. While we normally use Kewpie (Japanese) mayonnaise for use in small doses if we need a lot of it for potato salad or a dipping sauce there is really no better option than fresh home made.

Thai chilli jam

Thai chilli jam

This Thai chilli jam tastes so good I went through a stage of eating it on toast with only a slice of cheese. There are a lot of flavour layers to this recipe which really does set it apart from your average chilli jam.

mary’s lamb rub

This lamb rub is particularly good when smoking lamb shoulders. It also works well with other cuts of lamb. Rosemary, cumin, pepper, sugar, garlic powder, paprika. Mix all the ingredients and you’re ready to rub.

daisy’s beef rub

daisy’s beef rub

What spices to use in a beef rub is an interesting debate in the smoking world. A lot of the traditionalists, like Aaron Franklin of Franklin’s Barbecue, only use salt and pepper. That’s it. Personally, I need to do a few more tests before making a call – not a bad problem to have!

basic BBQ sauce

basic BBQ sauce

A great barbecue sauce works well to enhance the flavour of smoked meats. You can also use this sauce in all the other ways you would normally use a bbq sauce – burgers, hot dogs, pizza, steaks, the list goes on.

pp rub
